I Wage Peace founder Bruce A. Barrett produced and directed "The Billboard From Bethlehem", a film documenting a journey to the West Bank where Israeli soldiers and Palestinian resistance fighters, the Combatants for Peace, along with children from both sides participated in painting a giant peace mural in the West Bank. The sixty-three minutes film provides insight into the humanity of both sides, material for substantive discussion on the issues, and inspiring examples of how peace can be found.
The sign was received at religious services in the West Bank and Israel, then shipped to the United States to a Connecticut mosque, a synagogue, and a church, and finally posted on Connecticut Interstate I-95 and Route 8. Their journey with the handpainted sign is documented in this award winning film which has screened internationally and received four film festival awards.
The film is available for purchase and screenings:
